Adiri Bottles For Breastfed Babies

To my dismay, my son stopped taking a bottle at 5 months old. He now exclusively breastfeeds. I used to be able to nurse him and also give him breast milk in a bottle. But no longer.

I was discussing my bottle issue with the mother of a 13 month old. She told me about these bottles made by Adiri which simulate the breast. Apparently breastfed babies really like them.

So I emailed Adiri to ask them for a sample bottle to try. I said the following:

To Whom it May Concern:

I am the mother of a 11 month old, and I am heavily considering buying the Adiri bottles. I am still nursing and having difficulty giving my baby a bottle. He won't take one.

I currently have blog where I am beginning to review baby products.

Would it be possible for your company to send me a sample Adiri bottle to try?

Thank you for your time.

I went back to business as usual, and before I knew it, I had a reply from a Adiri! It went like this:

Dear Sarah,

Thank you so much for your interest in Adiri. We would be happy to send you a Stage 1 bottle to review. In order for us to help track our bottle requests, we ask that you please complete the attached form so that we may send your sample out.

Best Regards,

I was thrilled! I filled out the form immediately, and I am eagerly awaiting my sample bottle in the mail.

Check back here at for my review on Adiri bottles.


  1. YAY YAY YAY! I will try again soon to see if she likes it. :\

  2. O yea, she's 14 months! Wait, like 15 tomorrow! Wow time flies! But its for the almost-4-month old! lol. Not like Z took a bottle either. :P Does Ari use the sippy cups at all? It took us a while to get Z into them, but she first liked the Nuby ones. Now she's good with standard ones, but I have to say, the Born Free one is IMPOSSIBLE to get anything out of! Even I can't get it! :( Disappointment.

  3. He does like the Nuby, actually. And he just started to get into the standard kind of sippy cup.

    Also, I'm psyched to try the Adiri bottles.

    Yeah, I've had NO luck with Born Free, myself. I was really disappointed because my friend who has an 18th month old swore by the Born Free bottles.

    I guess its sort of a blessing in disguise when they don't take the bottle, because then there is no weaning off of the bottle.\

    But the bottle does offer flexibility, like before you are feeding purees or solids. You can leave your kid with someone and know that they are fed.
